CT Offshore will deploy its new trencher remotely operated vehicle (ROV), the CTO 107-1100, in June at DONG Energy’s Gode Wind 1 + 2 Offshore Wind Farms in the North Sea off Germany.

Some of the features of the CTO 107-1100 include smoother operation and a faster and more precise burial of the cables, CT Offshore said. It is purpose built for the cable laying industry.
The new trencher ROV has an operating depth of 100m, but with an option of up to 1500m, which means that the trencher ROV also can be used for various other industry cable laying tasks besides inter-array cabling at offshore wind farms.
“We are looking very much forward to bringing this new trencher ROV into operation. The test results from our first wet-test in the North Sea just outside Esbjerg exceeded our expectations and the performance of the new CTO 107-1100 reveals a very promising future,” Mads Carstens, senior manager, head of subsea said.
